Loma Announce New Album, Unveil New Song ‘How It Starts’

    Loma have announced their third LP, How Will I Live Without A Body?. The follow-up to 2020’s Don’t Shy Away is due June 28 via Sub Pop. The first single, ‘How It Starts’, is out today alongside a video directed by and starring the band’s Emily Cross. Check it out and find the album cover (by Lisa Cline) and tracklist below.

    To make the new album, the band regrouped in a tiny stone house in the UK, where Cross works as an end-of-life doula. “Sitting in our heavy coats around a little electric radiator, we realised how much we’d missed each other—and that just being together was precious,” Meiburg recalled.

    How Will I Live Without A Body? was inspired by Laurie Anderson, who offered a chance to work with an AI trained on her work. Meiburg sent two photos, to which Anderson’s AI responded with two poems. “We used fragments of these poems in ‘How It Starts’ and ‘Affinity’,” he explained. “And then Dan noticed that one of AI-Laurie’s lines, ‘How will I live without a body?’ would be a perfect name for the album, since we’d nearly lost sight of each other in the recording process.”
